LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX19) - The second Kentucky gubernatorial debate for the 2019 election took place Tuesday night at the University of Kentucky.

Incumbent Republican candidate Matt Bevin faced off with his opponent, the state’s attorney general, Democrat Andy Beshear.

The two brought their well-documented history of disagreements into their run for governor.

Beshear has made public education the top priority of his campaign, vowing to make several changes to the system.

Bevin, the Republican incumbent, is running his re-election campaign on what he says he has accomplished since taking office, things like creating jobs, addressing the pension crisis, and supporting pro-life legislation.

Kentucky is one of only three states with gubernatorial races this year, with Louisiana and Mississippi being the others. Voters head to the polls on Nov. 5.
